How I Use It
I use brain pop as a hook. It is great though because some of the topics have worksheets to go with them. If you use it too often the kids get bored and it loses it effectiveness.
My Take
It is a great teaching tool. The videos are cute and the kids learn the names of the characters in the video. If brain pop had more videos on more advanced topic it would be great.
